PrintFactory Announces Partnership with Fotoba

Software now generates a barcode for Fotoba’s new XLA series.




(PRESS RELEASE) AARLE-RIXTEL, HOLLAND – PrintFactory, a suite of workflow software, has partnered with Fotoba, a developer and manufacturer of finishing equipment for digital printing, wallpaper and textile application.

Fotoba’s core business is automatic devices mainly applied to the wide-format finishing world. Several patented ideas distinguish Fotoba, including Digitrim, the XLD Series and Multi Cutter.

PrintFactory’s workflow supports Fotoba cutters. The marks can be generated and printed in both automated and interactive environments including the XLA Series – Fotoba’s answer to further optimize finishing.

The relevant job data is placed directly on the print, and the Fotoba XLA reads this information to cut everything in the correct final format. Whether single or multiple-up, the side knives automatically move to the correct position.

PrintFactory’s workflow software includes device-link oriented, feature-rich tools that make life easier for teams working on the production floor. The tools include an editing package to speed up production; nesting and tiling tools that deliver the best possible layouts, with complete manual control; and a color engine developed to guarantee the right color, across all media, and devices.

In addition, the software has been designed to be “one click’”wherever possible, with in-app tools that make life easier for users. PrintFactory’s RIP-based software connects multi-manufacturer environments seamlessly, and the workflow software supports over 2,000 printers and cutters. With PrintFactory, Fotoba customers can automatically nest jobs and create layouts that communicate automatically with the knife positions. This seamless integration of automatic knife adjustment allows for variable sizes and, most importantly, greater speed and efficiency.


“This is a great partnership for us as it extends the automation capabilities of our workflow to include finishing,” says Erik Strik, CEO of PrintFactory. “By automating the elements of a large format printer’s operation that unnecessarily take up time and lose the business money in the process, business owners have an opportunity to redeploy the manpower involved … getting the team to focus on things like maintenance instead, for example. Building the business. Doing more jobs, better, faster – for more customers.”

Luca Bruson, vice president of marketing of Fotoba, added, “Working in partnership with RIP manufacturers allows existing and new customers to improve and diversify their production with Fotoba finishing systems. PrintFactory added the new cut marks and barcode generation for the Fotoba XLA cutter to help their customer enhance automation and drastically reduce human intervention in the cutting process. It is a great opportunity for companies looking for optimizing their production costs.”

In general, PrintFactory software is delivered via a network of distributors, worldwide. It delivers increased productivity, facilitates lower ink costs with no detriment to print quality, improves margins thanks to reduced waste media, and ensures consistent color. The company’s partnerships with device manufacturers bodes well for not only standard markets, but also for industrial-scale operations.
